    I wish Phil had a group box somewhere where we could donate our own audio files of these older shows. I’ve got about 300-400 files from 1993-1999, some taped off of WCCO, some taped from WIOD, etc. I’d happily upload them to a central dropbox or something. I would love for everyone to hear Dr. August’s (Professor of Sociology from University of Minnesota) theory on why the Norwegian people are just a bunch of sour, dour people who don’t get humor. That hour was one of the funniest things you’ve ever done, and one of your best from WCCO. The sheer amount of drunk Norwegians calling in from Brainerd or Stillwater was the best. I was in downtown Minneapolis at the time and loved many of those shows. If you ever set up a central server, or dropbox or something, let me know and I will happily upload all of my pre-1999 stuff. Bobbie Dooley’s palpitations from August 1999 when she found out Janice brought meat from Ralph’s (instead of Gelson’s) to the Western Estates Summertacular BBQhad me in stitches too – her description of sitting at the kitchen table with Steve, furtively going through all the receipts from the everyone, finally seeing the charge from Ralph’s – and the Irish Crystal Glass dropped out of her hand and shattered on the floor and she immediately called 911 to get their stomachs pumped from the dirty Ralph’s meat… man, hilarious and genius and twisted awesomeness, Phil!

    Hey Phil, I have access to a reel to reel machine and pro tools. I can convert the tapes to audio files.

    PHIL, TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, COULD HAVE BEEN INSURANCE REASONS BUT MORE LIKELY THEY DIDN’T WANT TO STOP ON HWY. TRUCK STOP IS THE BEST PLACE TO HITCH A RIDE WITH A TRUCKER!

    Yesterday I heard an episode from 2004 maybe, and Bobbie said ” You need to loosen your pigtails because it’s stretching your imagination.” At a dive bar last night in my hometown of Wilmington, NC that has a chalkboard in the head. I wrote that quote on there with no reference. About 45 minutes later went back in and someone wrote “hhhhmmmm mmmmmmm” under it! It was the bitchinist thing that I never did seen!!!

    Can I help?

    Hey Phil! Was listening to some archive of “Sundown” reviewing a Kiss concert. I was laughing so hard (Night in Taiwan, Bone Sandwich) my wife asked me what could possibly be so funny. She just doesn’t get it. I’m considering a divorce. What d’ya think? Seriously though, didn’t realize you worked with Neil Rogers. Used to listen to him when I lived in Sarasota. Is he still around?
